Ohio 25th In Healthcare

Ohio in the literal middle of the pack when it comes to states with the best healthcare.

Personal finance website Wallethub released their best and worst states for healthcare, with the buckeye state coming in at number 25.

WalletHub compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 43 key measures of health care cost, accessibility and outcome. The data set ranges from average monthly insurance premium to physicians per capita to share of insured population.

Ohio did finish 10th in overall cost for healthcare, but in the bottom third in outcomes.

Other highlights from the study include:

  • Massachusetts has the lowest average monthly health-insurance premium, $392, which is 2.4 times lower than in Wyoming, the highest at $960.

  • California has the highest retention rate for medical residents, 70.40 percent, which is 4.3 times higher than in the District of Columbia, the lowest at 16.40 percent.

  • Massachusetts has the lowest number of infant mortalities (per 1,000 live births), four, which is 2.3 times lower than in Mississippi, the highest at nine.

  • Rhode Island has the lowest share of at-risk adults without a routine doctor visit in the past two years, 10.30 percent, which is 1.7 times lower than in New Mexico, the highest at 17.00 percent.
